a story that's eerily similar to the sarah palin's post-election defeat plan. this time it's paul ryan whose future is being leaked about by his supporters who are fairly, clearly assuming that they are about to lose and they need to think of something else for paul ryan to do because he's not going to be busy as vice president. publically ryan and allies maintain that momentum is behind the romney/ryan ticket, but his biggest boosters realize he can write his own ticket. these allies spoke on the condition to discuss private proposals they were preparing for him. if romney loses, ryan will be seen as a white house contender in 2016 just like sarah palin was in 2012. for the next few years, democrats would lay traps forcing them to take sides on measures to come back to haunt him. that's why ryan's biggest boosters are considering why it wouldn't be better for paul ryan to resign from the house. he could write a book. or he could teach at a university. days before the election, paul ryan's supporters are leaking their plans to the press for what they want paul ryan to do since he's not

serious is this? we'll have the details. and paul ryan hasn't helped mitt romney a bit in wisconsin. now the congressman may have trouble hanging on to his own house seat. john nichols will join me with that. we'll be right back. >>> thanks for staying with us tonight. four days out, and the state of the race favors president obama. seriously. now if you look at it, it is never a lock, never going to be a lock. but the facts are here, in the swing states offering president obama is a clear path to victory. he's ahead in the polls and he's rising. in ohio, you've got president obama, he's been leading all along, and as you can see in the latest poll, averaged from real clear politics, he still is. this is why mitt romney is desperately campaigning in pennsylvania. it is a hail mary pass because he knows he's probably going to lose ohio. in wisconsin, president obama maintains a comfortable five-point lead. president obama is also maintaining his lead in nevada. in iowa, president obama is still ahead. the national average is closer, but president obama has been on the rise there as well.
from the chicago tribune. mitt romney and paul ryan made a joint appearance last night in the battleground state of ohio. >> not just picking a president for four years, we're picking what kind of country we're going to be. what kind of people we're going to be. what kind of country we're going to give to our kids. >> we want real change. we want big change. and paul ryan and i are going to give it to the people of america with your help. >> on the campaign trail today, mitt romney is holding three events in florida, with senator marco rubio, paul ryan's bus tour is crisscrossing ohio. president obama visits new hampshire this afternoon. and vice president biden will attend a rally in lynchburg, virginia. let's get right to it. nbc's mike viqueira is joining us from the white house. good saturday morning to you. >> hi, alex. >> first before we get to this president's trip north. is tropical storm sandy affecting any of the white house plans? >> it certainly is. you've heard this phrase, we're familiar with it, an abundance of caution. that's what you're seeing from some
to be back in iowa. [applause] don't think this is the last you're going to see of me and paul ryan. this state may be the state that decides what kind of an america we're going to have and what kind of lives our families are going to have. we're counting on you. and the choice you make this november will shape great things. historic things. and those things will determine the most important and intimate things in our lives. in the lives of our homes, our families, our loved ones. this is an election about america. it's an election about the american family. now all leches matter, of course. but this one matters a great deal. over the years of our nation's history, choices our fellow citizens have made have changed the country's course. they were turning points of defining consequence. we're today at a turning point. our national debt and liabilities threaten to crush our future. our economy struggles under the weight of government and fails to create the essential growth and employment we need. the same -- at the same time, emerging powers seek to shape the world in their image. ch
are joined now via skype from the campaign trail from niles, ohio by democratic congressman tim ryan, a member of the house budget committee. thanks for coming on. i want to get your reaction to the october unemployment numbers that came out -- 7.9% unemployment rate. 171,000 jobs added in october. your take on what those numbers mean in the near future and long term. guest: they are solid numbers. when think about where we are coming from in ohio to have those numbers moving in the right direction it think is positive. now it's about -- with the election season here -- who will be able to get this economy moving faster. there is a jobs bill in congress. speaker boehner will not bring it up for a vote. it will create up to another 1 million or 2 million jobs. getting people back to work with road and bridges and infrastructure -- teacher, police, and fire -- to take us to the next level. these are solid numbers, but we have more to do. we have to make sure we have a president that will get the job done for us. host: four days out from the election. you say solid numbers. how do you t
ryan from the great state of ohio. which is logical. congressman ryan, what is your sense of the state of the race in ohio? >> it's very close. a lot of polling has us up three or four points within the margin of error. there are several polls that have it neck and neck. we're doing really well on the ground game. there's--we've surpassed the 2008 number for early voting and obama is taking that at about 60%-30%. that's coming online. the weather has been bad. it's been cold and rainy. it's supposed to be nice starting friday, saturday, sunday, in which that will be solid for us to be able to get out the early vote the weekend before the election. but it's going to be close cenk. i mean, this is going to come down to the ryan. we're going to need people who will go out continue to volunteer and make sure that our voters get to the ballot box and that's how we're going to win. it will be a ground game. it will be grinding it out and it will be close right down to the wire. >> cenk: congressman ryan, i want to ask you about that ground game in a second. stay with us. michael, let me quic
. >> all right. ryan, let me talk to you right now. we know the president won colorado in 2008. he gave his accentance speech in denver. let's look at the break down. we have five million people in colorado. 81% white and 4% african-american and 20% latino which is strong support for the president. we don't want to do this along color lines because the president is the president of the united states of america. however, let's look at the demographic break down and tell me, ryan, how you think it plays for the president there in colorado. >> especially with the rising latino electorat in this country, specifically in states like colorado and out west, the bullying of the right wing is coming home to roost for the republican party. opposing a road map to citizenship and standing in the way of the dream act is not the way to win over the vote of new american immigrants most of whom moved here to raise a family in a land of freedom and opportunity. and they are overtly hostile to immigrants. >> how are you saying that? >> there are people who are pushing an agenda that seeks to take latinos in
is expected by romney and ryan and the platform would declare the fertilized egg to be a person, and that means that women's bodies throughout our childbearing years would be under government control. but also remember that one in three american women has needed an abortion at some time in her life before she's 45. most of those women who have needed abortions are already mothers, so they absolutely understand that it's important that every child is born loved and wanted. and there are already 35 states in which young women have been deprived of those rights. so we understand it's on the edge. >> what about roe v. wade. mitt romney has said he would work toward overturning roe v. wade. do you truly think it's in danger? >> it's much more than that. it has already been eviscerated in those 35 states for young women, and also for poor women who are dependent on government health care. and the romney-ryan position goes around even the supreme court to support a constitutional amendment to declare the fertilized egg a person. so they could not possibly be more clear. and whether or
. your question goes to mr. murphy. >> we have seen different numbers on what the paul ryan plan would do in the fact to increase costs to seniors, anywhere from $6,350 to about $200 a month. what kind of number can we look at and say this is what a cut will look like under this plan because of a large area of the budget that needs to be looked at? >> that is the kaiser family foundation study. under the ryan plan, 60% of seniors will face cost increases. this is something that needs to be addressed. under their plan, we end medicare as we know it. we need to reach across the aisle and ensure that medicare is there for generations to come. i was talking to seniors and you could see the fear in their eyes, worrying that medicare will be taken from them. we cannot let it happen. we need real solutions. under the affordable care act, they found inefficiencies and they have taken back away from insurance company executives, from the pharmaceuticals, and given it back to seniors, this is what we need to do to bring down the long term cost curve that is driving our costs through the roof. >> we
'm joined now by gloria borger and ryan lizza. thanks, guys. who's got the edge right now and we're getting closer and closer. >> it's hard to say. our head is exploding with all of these polls. but if you look at our -- let's take the state of ohio, which is of course so key to both campaigns. it's hard to see how romney would win the presidency without winning ohio, although they now say they could. although if you look at the internals you see what you've been seeing all along. president obama is up with women about 12 points, mitt romney up with men by 8 points. romney has made some in roads in suburban areas, but in our poll, the president is up with independent voters by about 5 points. what romney needs to keep doing, to get the momentum or to continue a momentum that he had after the first debate is to get those voters out in the suburban areas, married women in particular, that could make the difference for him in the state of ohio, which is so key. but as for overall momentum, we're getting so many polls in every day, you talk to both campaigns and they say their tracking is the b
, romney heads to three states. he will be in the midwest in wisconsin and ohio. on friday night, ryan, romney, and their wifs kick off the final stretch in westchester, ohio, where they are joined by 100 governors, senators, and mayors. on friday romney travels to new hampshire and colorado. sunday is still up in the air. on the trail in florida, romney began laying out his arguments, a shorter message than last week. >> to get us on track to a balanced budget, that's going to take some real work. to get that done it going to require something in washington that's spoken about but not done and it's something i have to do. i've got to be able to reach across the aisle and get good republicans and democrats to work together. >> meanwhile, we've got new nbc news marist polls and they all show a tightening race. the president leads in the three that released today. in iowa, president obama maintains a lead. six-point lead over mitt romney. that is down from eight two weeks ago. in wisconsin, romney has cut the president's lead in half from the last time we were there. he trails by three p
in dubuque. back to you. >> in about 30 minutes we'll hear from paul ryan, campaigning for mitt romney in battleground virginia my home state. must be slightly awkward for him today given politico's exclusive story saying ryan wasn't romney ace first choice for vp, it was chris christie. so jonathan what do you make of these reports, your out let there. politico saying romney was planning on going with christie and after his trip to israeling changed his mind? >> there was a significant intrigue going on even as these candidates are rumbling, stumbling and bumbling around the country in the last week if i can borrow your keith jackson refrain there. >> can you have it, actually. i don't think i'll be doing that again. >> mike allen and jim from politico reported chris christie was the number one choice for mitt romney at one point, he went to london for the olympics, came back and ended up picking paul ryan. there's a lot of bad blood right now between the romney campaign and the chris christie folks and we're seeing that spill out here right in the last couple of days. >> you know, le
ohio. congressman paul ryan on a two-day eight-stop trip through the critical battleground state calling on voters to support the republican ticket. nbc news correspondent ron mott on the bus with the vp nominee. i understand you just arrived in circleville, ohio? >> reporter: we are behind schedule by about 40 minutes, i would say. paul ryan just finished up a quick brief address with supporters outside lindsey's bakery. i'm told it's world famous. they've got pumpkin donuts they put on the bus here. we have two more events in about 120 or so miles left to go. this is a must-win for the campaign. that's the way they're positioning it. ohio senator rob portman said he can't see this republican ticket winning the white house without winning here in ohio. no republican has ever done that. stakes are high here clearly. as you mentioned, governor romney is going to be here tomorrow. hadn't planned on it, but they canceled all the events in virginia tomorrow where it looks like they are holding their own in the polls there. obviously are down here in ohio. the latest cnn poll was out
a narrow lead. paul ryan wind ul up a rally in pennsylvania where the romney campaign is trying to make a late pushed. the combined events of mitt romney and paul ryan will give the campaign in seven different states today. the president also had a whirlwind schedule today going to iowa, ohio, virginia, going to wisconsin as well today. vice president joe biden has two events in colorado, one outside denver, the other in pueblo. the candidates are also taking the fight to the printed page today with duelling op-eds in the "wall street journal." meanwhile back in d.c. this morning president obama at fema headquarters where he met with officials and talked about disaster relief in the wake of hurricane sandy. >> our hearts continue to go out to those families who have been affected and have lost loved ones. that's obviously heartbreaking. but i'm confident that we can continue to make progress as long as state, local and federal officials -- >> so, one critical thing. one critical thing to watch in this very busy final homestretch here, the closing arguments that the candidates are making
will be better than the past. [applause] if paul ryan and i are elected we will endeavor with all our hearts and energy to restore america. instead of more spending and more borrowing and more taxes, we'll renew our faith in the power of free people. we'll have a plan for a stronger middle class that has five elements. one we're going to put america on track to a balanced budget by eliminating unnecessary programs and send programs back to state and by shrinking the bureaucracy in washington. number two, we'll produce more of the energy we need to heat our homes, fill our cars and make our economy grow. we will stop the obama war on coal and the effort to crimp natural gas and the very technology that produces it. [applause] we're going to support nuclear and renewables and phase out once an industry is on its feet. and rather than vesting in solar we'll invest in signs science and research and by 2020 we will achieve north american energy independence. [applause] we'll make trade work for america. we'll open more markets for american agriculture and we'll hold accountable any nation that do
nonstop. vice president is in colorado and paul ryan is holding rallies in pennsylvania, virginia, florida, and ohio. so ohio indeed could be the biggest battleground of the election. the race there is very tight. a just released cnn/orc poll shows obama ahead by just three points, well within the margin of error. an nbc/"wall street journal" poll shows a wider gap with obama leading by six points. president obama is about to speak at a rally in mentor, ohio. he is at least in the building, we understand. and so is our white house correspond dan loathian. the president's schedule is packed today. he isn't just campaigning. he is also keeping a close watch on the storm which he says really is his first priority. >> reporter: that's correct. white house officials saying that president did get updates, briefings overnight. this morning he went to fema headquarters in washington to get a briefing in person, to get a sense of what is taking place with regards to the flooding, the power situation. he had some of his top officials in the room with him. he also spoke via video conference with the
campaign near englewood, colorado. so, jim, seven states tharks is one busy day for romney and ryan. did they generate any momentum today; do you think? >> we're going to have to wait and see, don. if you look at those battleground state polls that have come out in recent days, it doesn't appear that that surge of momentum may have stalled with the arrival of super storm sandy. we'll just have to wait and see on election day, don. if you wait and look at all of these battleground states, it is very cloesz when it comes to the president and mitt romney. we are leaving now and on our way to a rally in englewood, colorado. it will be his final stop here in this battleground state. and, also, john, his final western stop of campaign 2012. we've been hearing him talk nostalgically all day long. he was talking about the long days and the short nights and how his campaign is almost there. it's almost until election day. but really, what he's been doing is delivering his closing argument. talking about what he calls real change for the country. he's been seizing that unemployment data saying tha
that paul ryan, putting paul ryan as you just suggested, a catholic, will actually fire up the evangelical vote. >> no question about it. you know, paul ryan is mostly known for his work on the budget, for his plans to reform and save medicare. and he's mostly known for his stands on fiscal issues. but you know very well, larry, that paul ryan is a serious and devout and faithful catholic. he takes his faith very seriously. he wrote an open letter to the catholic bishops defending his budget. according to catholic social teachings, specifically solidarity and subsidiarity which states that help for the poor and the needy should be at the point closest to the need and should not be bureaucratic. he's pro life. he's pro marriage. he's pro family. i'll tell you this, on economic issues, as well as cultural issues, when mitt romney picked paul ryan, he made it clear that he was not comfortable to just be the anti-obama. that he wanted to lean forward and have a reform-oriented, forwar forward-leaning campaign. a real alternative. >> a statement of principles. the candidate of change. that's re
instead. the vice president continues on tuesday to ohio. congressman ryan is spending the weekend in ohio on a four hundred mile bus tour. we showed you heard it -- showed you his appearance earlier. mitt romney has canceled a number of events tomorrow and is instead campaigning in ohio with paul ryan. on monday, obama will head to the florida institute of technology. in about half an hour, we will take you live to lynchburg for the event with vice-president joe biden and his wife. until then, a look at the battleground state of north carolina from this morning's "washington journal. tell us what makes north carolina battleground state. guest: traditionally, it has been a red state. it is moving more and more into a competitive state, and there are several reasons why. one of the things our organization does is ask every year the voters where they stand in terms of conservative level. only florida and virginia, in terms of southern states, are to the left, so it is pretty divided. it also has political progressives, so it has been pretty much a modern state traditionally. there has been a
. along with the economy. democrats have tried to link republicans to paul ryan's plans to turn medicare into a voucher program, something democrats say would be disastrous for seniors. republicans believe they have neutralized that message by arguing obama care hurts seniors by slashing medicare. redistricting will have a big impact, helping republicans. >> for the most part, republicans because they made such overwhelming gains not only in congress but in state legislatures last year, they were able to control the redistricting process in a lot of key states. for example, north carolina, where democrats will probably lose a couple seats this cycle. >> gop gains look likely in districts from north carolina to arkansas, among others. in fact, party operatives say they even put traditional blue states like rhode island and massachusetts into play. democrats are trying hard to unseat gop incumbents in blue states like california, new york, and illinois. and could see gains in maryland and florida. so why do these house races matter? members of congress will have to make big decisions in th
" show's al roker will be report, from delaware. >>> ten days until the election and new today, paul ryan in the middle of a mad dash across the battle ground state of ohio. >> we have specific plans we're putting out there because we're asking you to support us so we can put this in place. we're not simply saying vote for us because the other guy's worse off. that's what they're running. >> congressman ryan's bus tour will visit five ohio cities today. mitt romney's in florida. will hold an event in pensacola later this hour. meanwhile the obama camp has released a new ad taking aim at mr. romney's economic plan. >> in here it's just you. no ads, no debates, just you. so think about this. mitt romney's plan rolls back regulations on the banks that crashed our economy. medicare voucherized. >> president obama also talking about avoiding the fiscal cliff which would trigger tax hikes and spending cuts two short months from now. he says he wants to work with congressional republicans on it. >> i've said to folks, i'll go to capitol hill. i'll wash john boehner's car. i'll walk mitch mcconne
